Car accident neck injuries
If the accident that left you with car accident neck injuries was not your own fault then there is something you can do. You can make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline. We have seen many cases of car accident neck injuries during our ten years in this business. A common car accident neck injury is a whiplash injury.
Whiplash is a common injury for those who have suffered car accidents. If you’ve had a car accident and you have now found yourself experiencing neck pain or neck stiffness then it is possible that you may be able to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline. If you make a claim for your car accident neck injuries with Accident Advice Helpline than you may be able to seek cash compensation. In most circumstances whiplash occurs when a sudden movement or jolt damages the ligaments, tendons or muscles in your neck.
This is why it is such a common car accident neck injury as sudden movements or jolts occur in car accidents such as when two vehicles collide or when one vehicle comes to a sudden stop. Whiplash compensation is often paid when a car accident takes place, causing the head to jolt forwards and backwards violently. However, it may also occur through long-term damage to the neck or if you’ve been the victim of a blow to the head.
The symptoms of whiplash may not arise until six to 12 hours after a road traffic accident has occurred or – in some cases – even longer. According to the NHS, the most common symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Neck swelling and tenderness
- Loss of movement in the neck
- More severe symptoms of whiplash include pain in the lower back, muscle spasms, dizziness, blurred vision and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). In a few cases, it may lead to loss of memory, poor concentration or even disability
If you think you have suffered whiplash or any other car accident neck injury then you should always seek medical advice and attention after the accident.
